Dutch referee scores 'bizarre' goal, awards it!

Watch Referee Accidentally Scores In Dutch Football Game Awards Goal

Harkemase Boys immediately surround football referee Maurice Paarhuis to protest

The official was taking charge of Harkemase Boys' Derde Divisie clash against HSV Hoek when he found himself in space in the Harkemase box amid a goal-mouth scramble.

The weird rule is set to change, with new rules to be introduced next weekend to prevent this type of goal from happening again.From next Saturday, should an incident occur where the ball hits the ref anywhere on the pitch, it will be a drop-ball scenario rather than play carrying on.

And, although Harkemase had a number of players back, the official put just enough on it for the ball to trickle agonisingly over the line.

Fortunately for Harkemase the goal did not affect the game's result, with the score at 3-1 before the ball went in, pulling HSV Hoek within one goal before the game was settled 4-2.

Players for Dutch fourth-tier outfit Harkemase Boys reacted with fury and disbelief after a odd deflection saw a referee scoring against them in a game - and then awarding the goal.

Luckily for the Harkemase Boys, the team still walked away with a victory.

Disturbing footage has captured the moment a drunk fan slapped a female security officer across the face at a football match in England.

He pleaded guilty to a count of assault by beating at Swansea Magistrates' Court and was sentenced to a 12-month community order with alcohol rehabilitation.
